The Imperial War Museum in London is the first in a family of five sites in the UK that are devoted to preserving and documenting the history of armed conflict around the world.
A collection of military objects, important historical documents as well as personal belongings of the men in action tell a dramatic and moving story.
A part of this important collection, dedicated to the War in Afghanistan was depicted through a display of photographs and personal items, with that campaign’s context being provided by the Vtec’s Rough Concrete Texture Panels. The display needed to be freestanding, three-dimensional, and able to incorporate multiple niches, containing documents, photographs and screens for video projections.
This meant that the choice of Vtec’s lightweight but robust Texture panels ensured that this impressive freestanding display could be quickly and safely constructed without erecting an expensive and permanent substructure, which would potentially alter the architecture of this important historical building.
